Hello - I am new to Juvenation and to "Parents of Children with Type 1." My oldest daughter is 4 now and was diagnosed in Aug. 2007 at the age of 2 1/2. We've had and continue to have lots of ups and downs, highs and lows, and an ever changing battle to gain control of her diabetes. I look forward to learning from everybody and hopefully helping others too. It is nice to talk to others that really understand the everyday challenges of diabetes. When you tell someone that you have to count carbs, check blood sugar 6 times a day and dose accordingly, they truely don't understand what that entails.
Have a great weekend!
